Lincoln County Hospital is the largest of our hospital sites, situated next to the cathedral quarter in the north of the city. The award winning Lincolnshire Heart Centre which has some of the best outcomes for patients in the country is based at the hospital. Staff tell us that they join the hospital because they can see the opportunities open to them to develop services and make their mark.
